Why Real Madrid beat Liverpool – Rio Ferdinand

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has suggested that Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 5-2 in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie at Anfield because the Reds lacked confidence during the encounter.

Real Madrid came from 2-0 down to beat Liverpool 5-2 in front of their home fans in the Champions League, thanks to goals from Vinicius, Karim Benzema and Eder Militao.

“The distinct difference in class tonight was shown. You have a team on one side who looks like they are going down, compared to another team which looks like it is still going up and improving,” Ferdinand was quoted by Daily Mail as saying.

He added, “This is a team that have been lacking confidence all season. They have had good results in the last two games.

“But you see the frailties as soon as they go behind, with the lack of confidence from over a period of time coming to the fore.

“It’s difficult to build confidence overnight. It comes with five, six, seven, eight games.”
